Old Dutch Recalls Various Flavored Potato Chip Products due to Possible Health Risk
For Immediate Release
December 14, 2016
Old Dutch Foods Consumer Care
Old Dutch Foods Inc. of St. Paul, MN is voluntarily recalling a limited number of Flavored Potato Chip and Tortilla Chip products that were made with milk ingredients supplied by one of its’ secondary seasoning component suppliers Valley Milk Products LLC, due to the potential risk of Salmonella contamination.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the blood stream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Product was distributed nationwide through grocery and other retail stores.
